Vixen VMC260L Meniscus Catadioptric Reflector Telescope with Mounting rail for SX Mount (finder scope is optional)
Model 75831

The VMC260L outperforms a traditional Schmidt-Cassegrain and despite a focal length of 3000mm, the tube is only 650mm long. With its 260mm aperture the unit collects enough light for serious observation and photography of both planetary and deep sky objects.

The VMC260L features dielectric coated mirrors to improve brightness and sharpness and its open tube design allows the telescope to cool more quickly than enclosed Cassegrain models.

An optional 0.62x focal reducer turns the VMC260L into an f7.1 imager.

The standard configuration includes a piggy-back camera holder which doubles as a carrying handle.
